Hi, I’m Rits

I’ve lived in Kyoto for 54 years

I speak English, French, Japanese

I am Tourism


Hello there! I'm Rits, your enthusiastic local host in Kyoto. Kyoto's rich history and the charm of its temples and Japanese gardens never fail to captivate me. When it comes to sake and whiskey, I am an expert in guiding you through the best breweries and distilleries in the Fushimi area. I love discovering hidden gems like small house shops and craftsmanship works tucked away in remote corners. Cycling along the bank of the Kamo River is one of my favorite pastimes, offering a unique city perspective. My extensive knowledge of the Fushimi area, Nishijin, Imadegawa, and Teramachi neighborhoods ensures you'll experience Kyoto like a local. I'm excited to share my love for Kyoto with you as we explore its magical mix of old and new and immerse ourselves in the intricate facets of Japanese culture. Let's embark on an unforgettable journey together!
